In brief: Depends
It depends on the extent of diabetic retinopathy, type of treatment and presence of other comorbidities.
There may be no complete recovery in terms of vision restoration. Your ophthalmologist (eye doctor) should be able to outline stages of recovery from the intervention.

In brief: Recovery time varies
Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
